Trends in HPC Leading to Exascale

Bill Nitzburg, Altair

Over at the Altair Blog, Bill Nitzberg has started a series of posts looking at the road to Exascale. He starts by looking back at the trends that have lead us to this point, concluding that Exascale infrastructure will require advances in four areas: scale, speed, resilience, and power management.

Caterpillar & NCSA Expand Collaboration for Realistic Simulations

C10282453

Today Caterpillar Inc. announced it will expand its collaboration with NCSA to develop more realistic simulations that can lead to improved product designs.

GE and Cascade Optimize Gas Turbine Simulation

7XJM0k

Today GE announced a multi-year joint development agreement with Cascade Technologies to improve combustion simulation software. With new visualaztion capabilities, engineers can virtually look inside a gas turbine as it operates and gain a better understanding of the turbulent fluid, chemical and acoustic processes occurring within advanced, low-emissions gas-turbine combustion systems.

Altair Launches PBS Pro 13

HPC on Windows – Does It Still Make Sense?

Jan Wender, science+computing

Could there still be a place for Windows in HPC environments? To find out, we caught up with Jan Wender from German IT service provider science+computing, who will deliver a talk on this topic at the ISC High Performance conference next month in Frankfurt, Germany.

Industrial Computational Breakthroughs on Blue Waters

150

“Blue Waters can tackle a very wide range of challenging tasks, not only from science, but also from engineering demonstrating the feasibility of efficiently solving extreme size real world multi-physics problems on the peta-scale and potentially exa-scale level, and thus adding tremendous value to future engineering simulation and research.”

Will Europe be First to Exascale?
